Industrial Garment Racks

bodie and four clothing rack (via SF Girl by the Bay)

I've always loved the vintage garment rack.  They scratched up steel, the worn chunky wheels, with gorgeous clothing hanging upon it.  In the past I've thought about trying to make one, then never found the time or had the right place for one....until now.  Now I have two young princesses who love to play dress up....

So I googled DIY garment racks, found some beauties but settled on this one at HrrrThrrr that seems very very do-able.  I think I will keep it unpainted and then maybe paint the bottom wooden shelf a cool color, maybe yellow, or mint, or barely there pink.... :)


Here are some other beauties!

Dining Room Wallpaper

I always feel like my head is orbiting 20x faster than I can keep up with, I see all these inspiring pictures, photos, blogs, yadda yadda yadda...  :-) Sometimes I'm able to absorb it quickly, sometimes, however everything will come later, days, months, years....hahaha  And then you have to decide what you just really like and what you really like and could incorporate into your home, office or space. 

One thing that I think I'd like to try out is modern wallpaper, nothing crazy just a little punch of it in a dining room or a bathroom.  Here is some inspiration, maybe someday soon, I can create a gorgeous space like one of these using wallpaper.

teepee tents

I'm already thinking about the holidays, can you believe it??!?!  Well I have to, with three birthdays thrown in the mix as well!  I've already started the pre-planning for all birthdays, as well as the big Christmas present from us, a gorgeous teepee tent (made by me!).  I was feeling ambitious this year and wanted to make a extra large teepee tent for my kiddos to play and read in, filled with lots of cozy pillows and rugs. 

To keep it very simple and in line with my Scandinavian inspired interiors, I am thinking I want a white canvas or linen fabric and I may paint a black pattern around the bottom of some sort, maybe...  Whilst looking for inspiration, I came across these gorgeous hideaways.

I think this very unstructured breezy white one is my favorite...


I love the crochet feature and lights on this one.

White, light and Fresh All Over

Although I'm pretty sure my husband would never ever let me paint our wooden floors white, I can still dream, and get lost in these beautiful interiors.  And maybe I wouldn't even have the guts but I'm loving these white floors and interiors.  Feeling inspired on a Friday!  Enjoy this tour de blanc.

I love the subtle pops of pastel colors with natural wood tones and greenery in this first pic.

Mint Green Love

Mint Green has been popping up everywhere, furniture, housewares, dishes, it's such a fun color too, this perfect shade of green, not too harsh, not too weak.  And you can coordinate it with just about any other color...

I recently scored a great deal on this adorable beauty, a little rough but nothing a little love and paint can't fix.  Earlier in the day I had seen a similar little cart at my favorite coffee shop, French Press.  It had napkins and spoons and what not on it.  I fell in love with it, wanted to wheel it out with me.  This one I found is very similar, a little rusty, but very similar.  I am trying to figure out how to paint it....first I was thinking the top shelf, spray painting a metallic silver color, and the legs Mint Green, or vice versa, or doing an ombre effect with shades of light to dark mint. 


In the meantime, I will look for inspiration...

Black and White

From day to day, depending on my mood, or mental state! :-), my feelings on design can change, is that the same for everyone?  Or just designphrenics like me??  It can be a good thing, because you can learn to adapt and love different surroundings, or it can be a curse...for obvious reasons...

You can't go wrong with the classic black and white, it has stood the test of time, and has only gotten better.  You can always change it up with pops of color here and there depending on the season, or your mood. 

With a sofa this color, silver grey taupe, there are endless possibilities.

I'm loving loving the boho feel of these pillows.

And to tie the room together...

And to top it off, a great rug...

Rhysey Breezy's Nursery

I remember this one day when I was pregnant with Rhys, wondering if I was having a boy or a girl...  The only part of me that wanted a girl, was that it seemed so much easier to decorate a girls room than a boy's!  Well little did I know how fun it would be to decorate a boy's nursery.  I'm having a blast.  His dresser is an awesome vintage dresser that I'm having refinished, his crib just went up today, and the other details are just starting to fall in place. 

Here are some of the pieces that will be going into his room.  Estimated time of completion: 1 Month!  Can I do it?! 

It all started with this poster...I know it's been overdone, but I love it...

Super Rural

I mean isn't the grey just gorgeous?!?!


Then it was the dresser....  I saw it then scoured and scoured for a dresser like this so it could be refinished.  Just waiting for the paint so refinishing can begin. 
This crib had me at Hello...  And for such a great price on Amazon, it was a no brainer.  I was able to sell our current crib for more than this one cost! 

Then how can you resist a Spidey crib sheet for a little boy...  Surprisingly these are hard to find, this was handmade, I found it on Ebay.

And no boy's nursery is complete without robot art...
